TL; Fault DR
- Hackers attacked Satoshi Nakamoto’s site to carry out fraud.
- The website was removed after the hack
- The cryptographic community is prone to advertising scams.
Anonymous crypto hackers have surrounded Satoshi Nakamoto’s website (Bitcoin.org). This website is the first and oldest website related to Bitcoin.
Earlier on Thursday, September 23, the website was compromised by anonymous hackers to advertise suspicious Bitcoin gifts. Unfortunately, the scammers had made about $ 17,764 before the violation was discovered, and the site was later removed.
Hours after Satoshi Nakamoto’s website was compromised, users noticed the fraud and shared it on Twitter. The main page of the website shows a drop-down page asking users to send bitcoins to a dedicated address and promising to double the amount.
Needless to say, this was actually another scam that society is already used to. The cryptography community has experienced countless fraudulent activities, including some of the most famous names inside and outside space.
Satoshi Nakamoto’s website was removed after the hack
After the site was compromised, other subpages were disabled. The main page does not allow you to click on other pages or even check the PDF version of the BTC white paper.
Ramzifa reviews are also verified as an error message (ERR_SSL_VERSION) when trying to visit the page.
The website, managed by an anonymous account called Cobra, announced on Twitter that the website may be offline after a few days of hacking. Cobra also blamed the security breach on Cloudflare’s recent change in web hosting, saying there was something wrong with the web infrastructure provider.
Endless cryptocurrencies and gifts
Gift scams are one of the most common methods used by cryptocurrencies. It is unfortunate that this structure is so important and even the origin of the space is being exploited by these hackers.
Last year, Twitter was hacked by a number of celebrities, influencers and politicians to carry out a gift similar to Bitcoin. The hackers then received hundreds of thousands of dollars within minutes of the tweets being prepared. However, the perpetrators of the robbery have been arrested and are currently in prison.
